Arizona Sen. John McCain says even though he does not know if his running mate in 2008 and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will run John McCain, Sarah Palin, 2012 Presidential Electionfor president, if she does she could win, Politico reports.

“Of course she can. She can. Now, whether she will, whether she’ll even run or not, I don’t know," McCain said in response to a question from “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “But you know a lot of things happen in campaigns Chris — I was written off a few times and we were able to come back — so it’s going to be a rollercoaster ride for all of them before we arrive at our nominee. But she certainly is a major factor and I believe she can be very competitive."

McCain said he’d never seen someone "as mercilessly attacked as Palin was."

When Wallace asked whether Mitt Romney could be nominated, McCain said Romneycare stands in his way.

"I think it’s a problem," he said. “I think he realizes that and is trying to address it. Whether he will address it successfully or not, I don’t know.”
